It's been 2 1/2 weeks since stopping it and I'm still having loose stool, not really diarreha but it's still not normal. I just started taking probiotics to replace good bacteria a week ago. HELP!
Anyone that took Clindamycin still getting loose stool weeks after stopping it?

Hi Chrissy2009. This is a common problem with taking antibiotics. They kill off the good bacteria in the gut. I would suggest you get the probioitc Florastor from you pharmacy. It will help with this problem You need to take it twice a day. You may buy it over the counter. This is the recommendation from my gastroenterologist. Best wishes to you..
You could have c. diff if you still have diarrhea. A visit to the doc is needed.
Thank you ladies :) My doc said my stool was too formed to test for c diff. I have been taking Florajen for a week but the loose stool may be from that too. I did have mucus in my stool ladt week but I haven't seen any this week so hope it's a good sign.
Get some Culturelle, better if you get the refrigerated one. Every time I go on antibiotics, my doctor prescribes Culturelle to take with it twice a day, and take ten days worth. You lose valuable bacteria every time you take an antibiotic, and that causes loose stools.
Feel better soon!
I'm taking refrigerated Florajen but didn't start till after I quit taking it, nobody told me too! I'm also thinking there may be yeast. I'm going 4 times a day but mainly in the morning.
What's all your experiences? How long will this last? My doc said to see a gastroenterologist. I think I just need time.
OHHHH boy... after taking cipro and falling apart i swear id never take another antibiotic..soooo i get a lump in my throat..go to E.R. tells me I have strep sooo I ..tell DOCTOR in no way am I taking cipro ..or levaquin... sooo he gives me CLINDAMYCIN..I took for 2 days and started having pains and a lookse stool..so i panicked and stopped... and now 8 days later I still have a loose stool..SIGH
I have been off of clindamycin for 9 days now. I am still getting one loose stool daily. I was on this drug for ten days at 300mg.
I am having this same issue for a week now after stopping clindamycin.. guess I am going to go to doctor tomorrow. I have nausea off and on too.
